My thanking heart knit to thee
My soul, cleanse fom all strange flames;
From Thee, compassion I receive;
Baptise my life, in Thy love.
Here am I. Send me.
Prayer for First Sunday of the Epiphany of our Lord. 5 January, 2014.
Inspired from John Wesley’s hymn “Jesu, Thy Boundless Love to Me,” along with the three Pentecostal affections (thanksgiving, compassion, and courage) infused through all new rhythms of redemption, sanctification, and Spirit baptism (Steven Land, Pentecostal Spirituality: A Passion for the Kingdom [Sheffield Press, 1993; CPT Press, 2010]).
